Cruisin' OC Heads back to Ocean City

OCEAN CITY, Md.- It's official: Cruisin' OC will be rolling through Ocean City once again in the spring. Earlier this week, the council approved dates for the car show.
 
Some locals say they're dreading for when those dates arrive. George Balunis, an Ocean City resident, says when the car events come into town, he stays inside. 
 
"You just don't go out on the road --to go to the store, on certain days or certain hours now, when those people are here because you don't want to get into a car accident or any other incidents," says Balunis. 
 
City officials recognize the car event is not only a nuisance, but a safety threat to the entire community, and they want to enforce regulations that would improve some of those problems. 

"We're looking at legislation in Annapolis,  next week to create a special events zone during these type of events-- very similar to a work zone, you'll see on a highway where we can increase fines and enforcement so we can mitigate or deter, some of the actions that we seen in the past," says Mayor Rick Meehan. 
 
George Balunis doesn't believe there's much the town can do to control such an unruly crowd. 

"They have a mindset of their own too, the people who are coming are already anticipating what they want to do and to have a sign say "whoop you can't do that," no more, won't work," says Balunis. 
 
An ongoing concern that neighbors are afraid won't go away.
